Oops, my mistake! Sorry for that. Thanks for the info.

I've been doing a lot of research today on TV...I've even submitted pages to IMDb for 4 different TV series today (2 of them DuMont, 1 of them ABV-2, and 1 of them WABD-TV), so please forgive me for making a mistake like that.

EDIT: Seems the episode I have, "The Little Caesar of Bleeker Street", might be one of the PD ones anyway. It appears to have been registered in 1980 as a "recorded document" which is years after broadcast, so would it be OK to upload?

Yes that should be fine. If there is no LP/L (pre 1978 registration) or PA/PAu (post 1978 registration) or an RE renewal registration number it's public domain. Recorded documents are usually about transfers of ownership or mortgaging or rights.
